Description Michal Nowak 2008-07-14 06:18:40 EDT
Description of problem:

Java plugin in Firefox v3 from RHEL4 does not work. Install java-1.4.2-ibm +
java-1.4.2-ibm-plugin (mmalik reported this for java-1.5.0-sun-plugin). Go to
about:plugins and see whether there are any java plugins. ATM there are none.

firefox 1.5 is fine. firefox-3 + java-*-plugin on el5 is fine too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2008-07-14 06:26:18 EDT
i386 or x86_64? Is nspluginwrapper package installed?
Comment 2 Michal Nowak 2008-07-14 07:07:50 EDT
java-1.4.2-ibm-plugin is only for i386, no nspluginwrapper installed (not
applicable for el4).
